Storyline

Dexter, sent to investigate a blood soaked crime scene, is gripped by a suppressed memory of childhood trauma. Meanwhile, Rita is charged with assaulting Paul and could lose the children in a custody battle. When Dexter finds out, he decides to take action to remove Paul from his and Rita's lives, but his solution is only temporary. Debra has a falling out with Rudy because he is spending more time bonding with Dexter than with her. Debra is still too naive and neurotic to see Rudy for the person he really is. During an evening out with the rowdy coroner Vince Masuka, Angel spots a local prostitute with a prosthetic hand whose fingernail polish resembles one of the Ice Truck Killer victims. Angel's hunch about a possible connection leads him back to Rudy. Lt. Laguerta's feud with her superior, Captain Matthews, intensifies over their handling of the Ice Truck Killer case. Matthews is more concerned about bad publicity than in uncovering and following all the clues in the case. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Roodey comes over with the 'porterhouse' steaks, it can clearly be seen that they are in fact T-bone steaks. When Debra confronts Dexter the following day, complaining about Dexter being able to communicate with Roodey and not her, she even calls them T-bone steaks and for some reason Dexter corrects her with the incorrect name, porterhouse steaks.

Just Bloody Brilliant!
4 January 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The tenth episode in the first season Dexter is by far the best one yet. The intensity level increases by a whole lot as we dig deeper into the case of the Ice Truck Killer and the past of Dexter. Regarding Dexter's past, we really begin to see some interesting developments here. This episode does not lack in anything and because of the fast-pacing, you just want to see what happens next.

This episode, "Seeing Red," has the killer striking again and leaves a room covered entirely in blood. As Dexter investigates, we learn more about his solemn past. Meanwhile, Debra and Rudy begins to fight with each other. Angel uncovers what could be possibly a big clue in the case. Rita may lose custody over her kids after she attacked Paul and Dexter cannot allow that to happen.

Overall, this is definitely the best episode of the series so far. It's beginning to tie things up and we can expect some big things to happen in the next two episodes. For one, I am extremely excited to see what they bring. If this is any indication, I daresay it's gonna be one tense time for Dexter and the Miami Police Department. I rate this episode 10/10.
